    Unanswered: how to make new changes to a file

    I have created a copy of an access file to make some changes to tables, forms and etc. Some of them are deleted, new ones created or the codes are changed.
    Is there a way that I can apply all the changes to the original file?
    Thank you

    Can't you rename the copy and give the name of the original file to it?
    Have a nice day!

    That would be my choice; also renaming the original file and keeping it safe, in case something goes wrong.

    Hope this helps!

    The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!

    Split the application
    Data in one db (the back end)
    Queries and user interface in another (the front end)
    In the front end link to the tables in the back end.

    If its a multi user db then each user has their own copy of the front end, ideally on their own computer
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
